  • [01] Tsipras: SYRIZA's founding conference 'historic milestone' for Left and democracy

    Alexis Tsipras was elected president of main opposition 'Coalition of the Radical Left' (SYRIZA) with 74.07 percent of the vote on Sunday, at the conclusion of a founding conference converting SYRIZA into a single, unified entity.

    Tsipras received 2,477 votes in total, giving him a clear and uncontestable lead over rival candidates Sissy Vovou (157 votes or 4.69 percent) and Panos Iliopoulos (22 votes or 0.66 percent).

    There were 3430 registered voters at the conference and a total of 3,412 votes cast, of which 3,344 were valid votes. There were a total of 68 'invalid' votes and 688 blank votes.

    In statements after his election as the new president of the newly unified 'Coalition of the Radical Left' (SYRIZA) party, Alexis Tsipras said the founding conference held to create the new SYRIZA was a "major step and a historic milestone for the Left and democracy".

    "Three and a half thousand delegates from all over Greece have put their stamp on the birth of the new. With open and vibrant democratic dialogue. With clear decisions. We have taken the historic step. From tomorrow, our new party, men and women together, more united and stronger than ever, embark on a great and victorious course: To stop the social destruction and to rebuild Greece," he said.
